Unless you’ve been living under a rock this summer you can’t have failed to miss the recent Ghostbusters movie. And to promote the blockbuster Sony Pictures collaborated with virtual reality (VR) company THE VOID to create a one-of-a-kind immersive experience called Ghostbusters: Dimension. Now THE VOID has released a new trailer for it, showcasing what’s in store for visitors.
Ghostbusters: Dimension opened at Madame Tussauds New York in July, just prior to the release of the movie. In it players a whisked into the Ghostbusters universe to do battle against ghoulish entities using THE VOID’s proprietary VR system including backpack, head-mounted display (HMD) and gun.
The video below flits between live video and in-game graphics, similar to other mixed reality (MR) videos. As you’ll be able to see Ghostbusters: Dimension players walk around a custom built area with real walls and other objects replicated in the virtual world to manoeuvre round and utilise when needed.
The full attraction is split into two sections, the first is where visitors wander through a New York City subway station, proceeding to the Alridge Mansion Museum. From here they’ll head to Zhou’s Chinese restaurant serving as the headquarters for the Ghostbusters, before concluding in the Mercado Lobby. The second is the VR section, with the experience set in a New York apartment to battle ghosts.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of THE VOID, reporting back with any further announcements.
